3D printing is a type of additive manufacturing (a process in which the part is created by adding material, rather than removing it from a piece of stock) that renders a part from a 3D model on a computer. SDP/SI has been actively supplying manufacturers of 3D printers with small mechatronic components and assemblies, helping them lower production costs. As a result, this amazing technology is becoming more readily available to mainstream consumers.
Choose from a variety of inch and metric standard and high precision components, including:
With a wide range of sizes and precision levels, SDP/SI components offer the accuracy and speed you need, while assuring smooth, reliable operation, low maintenance and long life.
Many 3D printers are rather small, as they are used primarily for prototyping purposes. Our Fairloc® fasteners are perfect for these types of applications, because the compact, self-contained design works well when space is limited. Both Fairloc® and Shaftloc®, another of our shaft clamping components, features simple yet innovative designs that allow easy positioning and readjustment without ever marring the shaft. These 3D printers also use our synchromesh products: both the plastic and metal pulleys and cable drive systems. These lightweight, chemically-resistant miniature components are a superior choice for transmitting synchronous motion.
3D printing's many advantages as an additive manufacturing process make it a promising tool for the future, but many of the traditional techniques for industrial manufacturing are still prominent for producing commercial products. Our small mechanical components can be found in a multitude of these products, including many that we use every day like computer printers and peripherals, ATMs, lighting fixtures, mail and passport systems, cameras, and many more. Whether it's a stock pulley or a precision gearbox assembly, we've got the right component to give your application precise motion.
SDP/SI has a long-standing reputation for superior manufacturing capabilities. Custom and standard components can be made out of a variety of materials, including molded plastic, aluminum, brass, steel and stainless steel, with NADCAP and customer approved facilities for castings, heat-treating, plating, and painting.
